Episode Narrative A strong low pressure system tracked east-northeast across central Illinois during the morning. Strong west winds developed in the wake of a strong cold front that raced eastward across the Lower Ohio and Mid Mississippi Valleys. Peak wind gusts were generally from 45 to 50 mph at most locations. Numerous tree limbs were blown down across western Kentucky. In Hopkins County, a tree was blown down across the southbound lane of Highway 1337. Power outages in Marshall and Calloway Counties were caused by trees blown onto power lines. In Trigg County, a large tree limb fell on a car in Cadiz. The car was severely damaged. Three small trees fell across city streets in Cadiz, closing them.
